The Tour of Utah will start in northern Utah with a return visit to Logan and Cache County. Starting in downtown Logan, the race will head up beautiful Logan Canyon. After cresting the King Of the Mountain (KOM) climb at 7,700 feet, the race will descend into Garden City and begin a 48-mile, clock-wise trip around turquoise-colored Bear Lake. The race will pass through the southeast corner of Idaho for a second time, turing off Highway 89 in St. Charles, and using Eastshore Drive to re-enter Utah on the eastern shores of Bear Lake. Riders hope to leave strong crosswinds behind as they return through Garden City for the short, but difficult, climb back up Logan Canyon. After a long descent on Highway 89 that passes Utah State University, riders will complete two downtown laps in Logan for an exciting finish on 100 East. The finishing circuits will favor a rider with strong technical skills and spectators will most likely enjoy a large field sprint.
